Stuck in eject


Wow. A cheap MD deck from 1998. Brings back memories.

The last time mine did that the sticky label came off and jammed up the mechanism.

Take the cover off and see what you can do by hand. Be REAL careful not to touch anything that looks electrical!

Hi have an mds-je500 minidisk player that stopped accepting disks, worked perfect one minute, says load error next each time i try to load, then says eject even though disk doesn't go all the way in....


The small limit switch for the disc in position typically goes bad on about 40% of all Sony Minidisc recorders. It is a $5 part, but will probably cost you $35 to get it installed.

MD player windows keep saying "no disc" when a disc is inserted. This started after the door starting getting sticky opening and closing. Any help would be great. Thanks


The little switch that detects the disc is inserted goes bad quite often on all of these sony home MD recorders. Do an online search as I have seen a step by step approach on it's repair. Make sure to UNPLUG the unit before removing any covers and poking-around inside. Good luck,

Sony minidisc MDS-JE320 Clicking problem


Hi,

you seem yo have a problem with the disk positioning/insertion switch, the switch may have become misaligned or it has become intermittent. The switch is located on one of the circuit boards that is attached to the drive mechanics. It may not be easy to get to it without dissembling the entire player. You may want to download the service manual and have a look to see the placement of the switch. Here is a similar player service manual for your reference.

Hope this helps you.

Cheers

The loading mechanism needs to be repaired or replaced. This is a common fault. Unfortunately, this is not a really cheap fix. Usually the loading carriage needs to be replaced at a cost of about $40 or so/

Clicking noise


Yup, you are right, the plastic gears are broken. You can buy new once and install them yourself or find a local repair shop that can do this for you.
